Steve writes in relation to FSE:

As difficult as this song was to perform and record, after it was done I thought… “Hmmm, I can get even freakier than that.” So wait till next time.
!!
That's Steve for you.

I remember an interview in the mid 90's, about the mixing proces :

Interviewer : Don't you sometimes feel like you're beating a dead horse?
Steve - Yeah, and I'll flog it until ir comes back alive.

I'm thinking if he hadn't picked up the guitar, the wolrd would be in serious trouble.

As far as the vocal songs go, I'd really love Under It All and Alive in an Ultra World (one of the best guitar tones Steve has had, period).

Wow, the mini-site looks beautiful! I don't think I have ever even heard of any other artist making such an amazing project available, I mean with so much useful information and advice right from the artist himself.
I can only imagine how much time did it take to type all of that stuff, not to mention what it will take to make the transcriptions available on the site. Whew! :)

hum...just one question: WHERE is the mini-site?

I've been waiting for days to see it online and last time I checked, it still wasn't....all I know is that it will be up soon, but could it it be that I actually missed it?

Yay, most naked tracks on iTunes outside the US!

(and Firewall's in there. Wasn't that somewhat vocal, hmm?)

I had clearly more pleasure than I expected jamming over Ooo. I played mostly crap, mind you, as I haven't ever worked the piece before, but surfing over those changes is most excellent - even when I crash and burn. I loved the intro but wasn't so fond of the rest of the song - now I'm hooked.

A 5CD set will be available too, but right now it's still in production.
